I Love This Translation!

Here is a Bible passage that I have heard often, although the translation here (the one from Life of Christ by Fulton Sheen, pp. 194; perhaps the Knox translation?) is just beautiful:

That conclusion, cannot be taken in by everybody,
But only by those who have the gift.
There are some eunuchs, who were so born from the mother’s womb,
Some were made so by men, and some have made
Themselves so for love of the Kingdom of Heaven;
Take this in, you whose
Hearts are large enough for it.
— Matthew 19:11, 12

[Emphasis mine]

Especially the “you whose hearts are large enough for it,” because that is one of the most amazing things about my priests — they have amazing hearts. πŸ™‚

God bless them all! πŸ™‚
